This is a variation of a chicken carbonara dish from Carrabbas. For the best flavor use freshly grated parmesan cheese.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium high heat.
  2. Add shallots and garlic and saute for about 5 minutes until starting to get soft.
  3. Meanwhile cook pasta according to box directions.
  4. Add mushrooms, prosciutto and chicken. Cook for 5-10 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
  5. Meanwhile whisk egg yolks together with the heavy whipping cream and parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  6. During the last minute of the pasta cooking, add in the frozen peas.
  7. Remove the pasta from heat. Drain for about 5 seconds and put into warmed serving bowl.
  8. Pour prosciutto mixture into pasta and toss.
  9. Immediately pour egg mixture over hot pasta. The heat from the pasta will cook the eggs. Toss well to combine.
  10. Allow to sit for approximately 5 minutes before serving to thicken.
  11. Sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese and serve.

My family loved the combination of ingredients. I added extra prosciutto and no peas. Very yummy.

Really yummy! Made the recipe exactly as written (used fresh mushrooms since the recipe didn't specify). My whole family enjoyed it. I will be making it again soon.

I had always thought carbonara was frozen and came in a flattish plastic container with a cardboard top that's to be peeled away 1" from the corner before microwaving. Made for Mediterranean Photo Tag. (Man, I forgot the peas.)
